Baldwin remains positive despite 7s exit
Luke Baldwin believes the clubs JP Morgan 7s campaign has provided plenty of positives despite bowing out in the group stages of the final held in Bath in dramatic fashion.
“There are plenty of positives we can take away from tonight as well as last Saturday” said the 22-year-old.
“A couple of the younger lads who came into the squad this week really gave a good account of themselves - I think Ben Ransom should get a special mention, he played exceptionally well tonight".
"We wanted to come here tonight and show that togetherness that we have as a team – bring that intensity and physicality that we at Saracens pride ourselves on and give a good account of ourselves tonight".
“I thought we did that, but sevens is a game that can turn almost immediately and with a bounce of ball that led to them scoring their try that was the game unfortunately”.
Baldwin added; “We’re obviously bitterly disappointed with tonight’s outcome - at the end of the day as a club we want to compete in every tournament we are involved with and a few little errors let us down tonight. But we’ve got to move on and go on the South Africa tour with a positive mind-set and get ready for the start of the season”.
